Lssah info requested, please
A retired USMC officer I know had a Grandfather in the LSSAH. Grandpa was killed in Caen (France?) but not certain what year. Grandma married a US Army soldier to get away from Germany, and seldom talked about it - and is long dead. He is not even sure of Grandpa's name. He thinks either Gunther Rolf, or Rolf Gunther. I was wondering if some of you guys with the books could find his Grandpa in the records and give his some info about DOD, DOB, even his name - FOR SURE. A foto would be REALLY appreciated. Thanks ! PS: How do you like "PANZERMEYER" ? I just got this today.

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
